World No. 4 Andy Murray has announced a new player/coach partnership with eight time grand slam winner Ivan Lendl.
Failing to win a Major title in his career, Murray will look to gain great perspective from his new mentor.
“Very happy to announce that Ivan Lendl is my new full time coach,” said Murray. His impact on the game is unquestionable and he brings experience and knowledge that few others have, particularly in major tournaments.
Murray will begin his 2012 season as the top seed in Brisbane. The Scot has reached the finals of the Australian Open the last two years.
